Earlier today, Frank wrote about his plans to spend this Memorial Day weekend sharing time with his family and remembering those who gave their lives in service of our country. I say, good for him. And good for you, if that’s what you’ll be doing, too.
However, I suspect that many of you (me included) will spend at least part of the weekend working. We’ll say it’s because we have to, because business will suffer if we don’t, because it’s expected, because we won’t get paid if we don’t work, because it’s a sacrifice you have to make when you run a business. . . and on and on.
The truth is, for most of us, our businesses will function just fine if we turn off the phones and the email for one day.
